Volunteers & Community


Volunteers are an integral part of the success of Alta-1 and offer an important service to our organisation. Alta-1 actively seeks to work with committed volunteers from within our partner churches and approved external VET training practicum student placements. Volunteers work together with Alta-1 staff to further our mission to transform communities and re-engage students.

Alta-1 is committed to the safety and wellbeing of all children and young people, especially those who access our services. For this reason, all volunteer applicants undergo a comprehensive screening process and if successful, must provide current Working with Children Checks or Blue Card and Police Clearance documents before commencing, which the college will reimburse.

Alta-1 will also provide all successful applicants with appropriate training so that they feel prepared for their role in the classroom. We would love you to join our extraordinary team with a vision to help all our students create positive change in their lives.

If you want to become part of the Alta-1 success story, please download our volunteer application form to apply and we will get in touch with you.


At Alta-1 we believe in providing a positive and safe community that fosters a sense of belonging, recovery, identity and emotional stability for all of our students and staff.

In addition to our education and therapeutic support, we surround students with positive and relational staff, generous and kind volunteers, a supportive church and wider community, and local businesses who are invested in helping our students find their path in life.

Our partnerships thrive because they incorporate a unified mission to transform communities through justice, recovery, knowledge and hope and they are built upon a shared commitment of respect, trust and goodwill for all within the Alta-1 community.
